    1st Service £140, Yea rgiht!

    Vauxhall quoted me £140 when I spoke to them on the phone.
    I recieve letter today saying they will give me £25 off.

    The service covers the following:

    Oil Filter Replacement
    Screen wash Top up
    Oil/Water/Coolant fluid level check
    Tyre Pressure check
    Brake check
    Tyre tread depths
    Lights/horn/wiper check

    I'm sorry if they want £115 of me just so I can get my book stamped they can F**K right off.

    To me that just looks like a minor service, which I just got for £60!

    Without the book being stamped your car won't be covered under warranty

    And all of the above you can do yourself for next to nothing no?

    I can't believe they actually charge for some of those things.

    Edit: buggar was beaten to it.

    Autosparks is right, your car will not be covered by warranty if anything happens before 3 years or 60,000 miles. Engine or clutch replacement would cost a lot more than £140.00?
    Bear in mind also, that the oil for your car will be around £40, on its own!
